Arkhangelsk is the first sea port in Russia and has been in operation for more than 400 years. The port is continuing to grow in importance due to the development of oil and natural gas deposits in the White and Barents Sea region as well as the growth in Russian export trade.
Rosneft’s Arkhangelsk oil loading terminal, located in the Russian North West, is used to export a portion of the oil that Rosneft produces in Timan-Pechora. Oil from Severnaya Neft’s fields is transported through Transneft pipelines to the Prodino loading facility, where it is transferred to rail tank cars, carried to the Arkhangelsk oil loading terminal and then shipped by shuttle tankers to the Belokamenka floating storage unit located in a gulf of the ice-free Kola Bay. The oil is exported from the reservoirs at Belokamenka to Europe and the US. This arrangement enables the Company to overcome shortages of available pipeline capacity in the North West of Russia.
